Tail Dragger – My Head Is Bald: Live At Verne’s Friendly Lounge
Delmark DE 782 (2006)
Compact Disc – Also available on DVD!
A wonderfully dramatic showman, Tail Dragger also possesses one of the most authentic and distinct Chicago Blues voices ever. In 1998, his American People (Delmark 728) CD, was described as “tour de force Chicago Blues” by Art Tipaldi in Blues Revue. Those who have seen Tail Dragger perform know that a studio CD cannot fully capture the excitement of a live show. My Head Is Bald remedies that by presenting a live recording done on Chicago’s west side, where Tail Dragger currently performs every Sunday. Featuring Billy Branch, Jimmy Dawkins, and Lurrie Bell.
